FA Cup medals are stolen

Portsmouth celebrate after winning the FA Cup

Burglars have swiped the medals of two of Portsmouth Football Club's victorious FA Cup squad.

Pompey beat Cardiff City on Saturday 1-0 to win the trophy for the first time since 1939.

But goalkeeper Jamie Ashdown, 27, and defender Glen Johnson, 23, had their medals stolen from a hotel in Windsor, Berkshire, that evening.

Police said they are investigating the theft of the medals during a hotel break-in.
